Common Purpose Charitable Trust

Common Purpose delivers face-to-face and online leadership programmes for multiple generations of leaders: from students in universities to senior leaders in organizations and society. They develop leaders who can cross boundaries. This enables them to solve complex problems both in organizations and in society.

In 2010, American Express partnered with Common Purpose to create a Leadership Academy in the UK, bringing together emerging leaders from leading charities, including community, education, international relief and cultural organizations. Since then, the program has successfully expanded to Hong Kong, Singapore, and more recently Southern Africa.
